Rise Up My Watchmen
By Deborah Waldron Fry
Rise up, My Watchmen, be very observant and do not be distracted by the noise of the enemy. Proclaim the Day of the Lord is near! The Bridegroom is rejoicing over His Bride! He whom you love is coming soon!"
All who are filled with the Spirit are called to be My Watchman on the Wall. I have given you ears to hear and eyes to see. Do not let the enemy distract you from your post. If the world hates you, understand that it hated Me first. If you were of the
world, it would love you as its own. Instead, the world hates you, because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. Pay no attention to the noise of the enemy. He is a liar and the father of lies.
"I have positioned you as a watchman for your family, your church, your city and your nation. You are called to discern friend from enemy and warn of the approach of hostile forces. Do not fear but be awake and alert. Cry out when you see deception
and do not remain silent. You will see with eyes of the Spirit and by Him I will show you things to come. You shall turn back the battle at the gates with a Word, Oh My Anointed One!
"But not only will
you discern what the enemy is doing, but even more so shall the Spirit show you what I AM doing. He will show you the Deep things of your God. Deep is calling unto deep. You are the Restrainers of the last days, filled with My Spirit, to observe and watch,
to preserve and protect the sheep under your care. The One who enters by the Gate is the Shepherd of the sheep. To Him, My Watchman opens; and the sheep hear My voice: and I call My Own by name and lead them out to Green Pastures.
"Do not fear. You shall hear My Voice and you will know what to say. A man has joy by the answer of his mouth, and a word spoken in due season, how good it is! Blessed are those who are born of the Spirit. Flesh is born of flesh, but
spirit is born of the Spirit. Tell My People that they must be born again. The Wind blows where it wishes. You hear its Sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit. Do not be silent day
or night, Oh My Precious Watchman!
"Blow a shofar in Zion, and sound an alarm on My Holy Mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble, for the day of the LORD is coming; Indeed, it is near. It
is not a time to fear but to rejoice! The Lord utters His voice before His Army, for His camp is exceedingly great; He who executes His word is powerful. For the day of the Lord is great and very awesome; who can endure it? No weapon formed against you shall
prosper and every tongue that rises against you in judgment you shall condemn!
" Go forth, My Warrior! You shall speak with Great Power by the Spirit and greater works shall you do! Proclaim this:
“O Death, where is your sting? O Grave, where is your victory?” The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to your God, who gives you the victory through your Lord Jesus Christ! Tell them the One they love, the One
they are watching for is coming soon and His reward is with Him! The Bridegroom is rejoicing over His Bride! This is the Word of Grace, My Watchman on the Wall!
"Announce the Good News, My Watchman!
What you hear whispered in your ears shout from the rooftops! For it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, and your young men shall see visions.
And it shall come to pass that everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved. I am your Praise and I am your God, who is doing for you these great and awesome wonders that your eyes will see. Yes, Rejoice, My Child! The Day of the Lord is at hand!
WATCHMAN: gatekeeper: Strong's Greek 2377: a doorkeeper, gatekeeper, porter, watchman of the door; from thura and ouros (a guardian) a gate-warden that kept the door. Vincent's Word Studies: Porter (θυρωρὸς)
From θύρα, door, and ὤρα, care. An under-shepherd, to whose charge the sheep are committed after they have been folded for the night, and who opens the door on the arrival of the Shepherd in the morning. A "shomer"
just as Adam and Eve were. This is a watcher, a guardian, a keeper, a steward.
WATCHMAN: Strong's Hebrew 8104: to keep, guard, observe, give heed, have charge of, keep watch and ward, protect, save
life ; to watch for, wait for, observe, to keep, retain, treasure up (in memory); to keep (within bounds), restrain, to observe, celebrate, perform (vow), preserve, protect; to keep, reserve; to be on one's guard, take heed, take care, beware; to keep oneself,
Song of Solomon 3:3
I encountered the watchmen on their rounds of the city: "Have you seen the one I love?”
Listen! Your watchmen lift up their voices, together they shout for joy. For every eye will see when the LORD returns to Zion.
For as a young man marries
a young woman, so your sons will marry you; and as a Bridegroom rejoices over his Bride, so your God will rejoice over you. 6 On your walls, O Jerusalem, I have posted watchmen; they will never be silent day or night. You who call on the LORD shall take no
rest for yourselves.
And he cried, A Lion: My Lord, I stand continually upon the watchtower in the daytime, and I am set in my ward whole nights:
“Truly, truly, I tell you, whoever does not enter the sheepfold by the gate, but climbs in some other way, is a thief and a robber. 2 But the one who enters by the gate is the Shepherd of the sheep. To Him
the guard of the door (watchman) opens; and the sheep hear His voice: and He calls His own sheep by name, and leads them out.
If the world hates you, understand that it hated
Me first. 19If you were of the world, it would love you as its own. Instead, the world hates you, because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. 20 Remember the word that I spoke to you: ‘No servant is greater than his master.’
If they persecuted Me, they will persecute you as well; if they kept My word, they will keep yours as well.
He is your praise and He is your God, who has done for you these
great and awesome wonders that your eyes have seen.
1 Peter 1:8
Though you have not seen Him, you love Him; and though you do not see Him now, you believe in Him and rejoice with
an inexpressible and glorious joy.
1 Corinthians 15:55
“Where, O Death, is your victory? Where, O Death, is your sting?” 56 The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the
law. 57But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!…
